Peruvian-Style Corn, Pepper and Chicken Soup
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
Summer's bountiful garden is showcased in this delicious soup. The original recipe did not call for potato, but as Peru is the potato's home, I felt that it would be appropriate. I did not have the aji amarillo paste, so just improvised with several different peppers. If you cook the chicken ahead of time, this is very fast to make. Adding a bit more chicken and the potato makes this more of an entree soup. Very flavorful and fun to eat. From Sunset Magazine, August 2012.
